When dealing with the bullshit vendor class of merchants, the questions that don't get answered are usually the important ones. Building 7 is an obvious example, seemingly not existing in the wild and inaccurate saga of 9/11 as it is known in the mainstream.
Exposition in a short article describes bitcoin thus:
Bitcoin is a form of fully-digital currency that is widely used is some (often seedy) corners of the Internet. “Bitcoin mining” refers to the algorithmic process by which Bitcoins are earned. A computer or group of computers attempts to solve an extremely complex equation, and once the answer has been reached, a block of Bitcoins are awarded. The equations get more and more difficult as the years go on to compensate for increased computing power.
It can take years to solve just one of these equations on a single PC, so as a result some people network their PCs in a coordinated effort.
Desperate and short-lived schemes are apparently the staple of collapsing economies. Bitcoin seems to fall into this category, purporting to solve the problem of currency issue, but introducing significant problems of its own. I conclude its moment of prime profit must be short-lived because I strongly suspect that gaping flaws work much better for currencies people were born with, than one that's sold to them in the age in which many persons carry an evolved resistance to infomercials.
It so happens that it is also the age in which giant banks (beneficiaries of the current gaping flaws in currency issue) extract further advantage by using massively powerful server farms and low latency network connections to automate sheep shearing of the stock market, AKA High-Frequncy Trading.
A question you won't find answered relating to bitcoins, is how those who already acquired the most resources would be prevented from extracting unfair advantage via the new system. Bitcon is designed around the premise that more processing power equals more money. Even if the generation of bitcoins could be limited per account, the creation of fake accounts (in effect fake persons) could not be limited without a key component.
The solution to this basic design flaw that we're no doubt meant to come up with—but not until enough people have a stake in the success of the bitcon—is that a hard accounting should be made of all activity by some appointed authority. Being the first true digital, and global, currency, that would require a detailed (and mandatory) centralised global ID system, tied directly to your financial activity.
It is particularly noteworthy that further centralisation is usually the solution offered by the bullshit vendor class of merchant, having extracted all the profit from the problem that it could. Centralisation serves to concentrate control, and means therefore power. It is further noteworthy that control and power (or "order" as it is amorously referred to) is usually sought by those so unable to cope with the realities of existence that they go to extremes to make the universe appear to accord with their limited understandings.
An ultimately poor attempt at legitimizing the official story of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in the only medium it would seem plausible: Science fiction. Not only does anything actually relating to the assassination play a very minor role in the story—making every description I saw used to sell the book as fraudulent as its contents—but it seems that the closest either of the writers actually came to LSD was its wikipedia page.
Guess I was a little overoptimistic expecting anything other from the creator of Heroes.
Happy new b'ak'tun.
It's been feeling for a while now that we're splitting off from each other, and that feeling has just kept getting more powerful for me. If you look at the media, you could certainly be convinced for yourself. The muppets in america are clearly being driven to each other's throats, caught as always in utter terror. Turns out parenting interferes with pawing away hours at your cell phone, now we have to ban all the things so that the adult world can become a child-friendly version of itself to accommodate the worst examples of ourselves; pretending that the utterly exceptional is the norm. No doubt they're lobbying to get oprah and dr phil inserted as a suppository for every man, woman and child, because accepting their programming via the teevee has clearly done so much already. It doesn't satisfy much that I put in the words early.
A couple of years ago, I benefited from a borderline psychedelic experience thanks to some magic mushrooms that had mostly gone off by the time they reached me. I asked what was ahead for us, vis-a-vis the new b'ak'tun, and my subconscious answered in the form of the semi-vivid, symbolic vision that my mind appears to favour. It showed two spirals, or maybe two directions in the same one. The rotations on one keeps getting smaller, while the ones in the other direction keep growing outwards. It showed me that most of us were in the shrinking one, but that by now, most of us would have migrated out of there. The implication was that chasing the shrinking spiral was a result of acting in fear, and the further implication was that the shrinking would eventually mean for everyone on that path a kind of spiritual death, if not a physical one. I realised what that meant for me personally, and found it difficult to believe that I would in the interim give up my (fear-induced) habit of tracking and saving important world news, or trying to front-run the future via the reports of a "rickety time machine", but now that's already happened.
If you haven't noticed the spiral getting smaller, you haven't been paying proper attention. Most people have been pulling into themselves, trying to live in a fractal of things that were once tiny; getting all worked up and interested in things like coffee and food, then hiding there. Watch satellite teevee and you'll find prison and cop shows trying to convince you that big brother is everywhere and that not even a gram of weed could escape the "great eye". Switch the channel and you'll find people trying to convince you to spend hours a day preparing meals. Be only afraid of al CIA-da, the other channels beg: "Don't worry that the most terrified nation on earth murders their own citizens in false flag attacks for an excuse to secure other people's resources and your own: We got people whose job it is to worry about that, and they seem quite satisfied, sleeping on mattresses made of stolen oil money."
The propaganda is only going to get clearer and more self-defeating as time drags on. Satirists have been out of work for years now, their jobs taken away by people who thought they were being serious. A once (relatively) reputable south african news site spammed this into the headlines, like it wasn't an ad. I wonder what they think they will be left with once people spent all the energy they had left on getting worked up at summer, coffee, cat pictures, or the left-hind leg of big potato moths. Probably willing shells with which to make war on the rest of us.
I am not afraid.
It's been prepared over hundreds of years and the path has been cleared for it by those with the resources to own the media. The thing has been carted out for the grand unveiling, and now and then the wind lifts the corners on the cloth obscuring it so that those who had already guessed its shape can have their guesses validated. As expected, it is riding on the back of the occupy movement. Beta tests being run on the internet show it may well be called occupy world government.
Following will be a global media campaign like we've never seen. See the kony campaign for a taste of what manner of self-contradicting lies and astroturfing will be pushed to sell this thing. They called it an experiment, because that's what it was. See most bank adverts for the kind of sentimentality that can come from an organisation which does the exact opposite of what they say.
You can always recognise these people, because their goal is order and the justification they use is the lowest common denominator of humanity. First, it's important to recognise that there isn't actually anything like chaos. If you don't have access to or the guts for psychedelics, you can understand this concept in theory by what is generally understood of science: Every reaction has an equal and opposite action. Atoms (nor anything else) don't react at random, they react based on the laws of physics. So really, chaos is an abstraction for a person's inability to understand the world around them. The quest for order, then, is a symptom of someone who cannot cope with this inability, and indeed devotes their life to pissing up the wall after a belief that they can make the universe conform to the limitations of their comparatively tiny minds. This is why this quest for order and the quest for wealth tend to go together; they both originate from fear of the unknown.
It's for the women and the children, they say. Those women and children used to have husbands and fathers, but that model is all but destroyed now: Too much autonomy there. Then they will parade the utterly exceptional examples of disability. It's no accident that this is the same lie and irrational fear the TSA and its parent, the war on privacy, is based on: They pretend that the exceptionally exceptional is the norm. "Terrorists exist, so everyone who works must be treated as one." It's weakness porn for the politically correct. They want to appear to care, but only enough to appoint someone else whose job it is to care.
It doesn't matter whether this world government will indeed ensure that every kitten's ass is perpetually stuffed with a strawberry as they promise. It's another law of physics that those that feel they cannot acquire anything honestly are attracted to power. Even in the upside-down world most people live in by default, where steel-and-concrete buildings collapse at free-fall speed into their own footprint because of fire, and coordinated global media campaigns are not launched by those that own the media; it will not be long before the political and banker types infiltrate this single lever of power established in sentimentality over the entire planet. Who will the duped go to to solve the corruption in world government? By their current logic, they will happily be herded into galactic government. "One galaxy, one government." Order through homogeneity. Problem still unsolved, except now it's illegal to say so.
Up until now it's been religion that said the answers lie outside the self. That model will be finally pushed aside for "new and improved", where it will be world government that people run to for everything, allowing their mind, body and spirit to further weaken in disuse, until it is too late for them to do anything to free themselves of this product. It is already too late for many, who would do anything as long as the order came from a figure of authority. They will meet the bottom of this cliff in a dream, already having lost the ability to say "I".
It should shame any sentient being to say that fully seven years passed before they could see 9/11 for what it is, as was the case with me, but luckily most people who would judge me are still unable to hold the necessary concepts in their heads long enough to form a picture. It is my opinion now that this event was intended not only for sale of the terrorism surveillance state and what will probably turn out to be the last terran-only war, but also to divide the people of earth between those who can see what is in front of them, and those who cannot or will not. Divide and conquer may be an old trick, but as you may note from much the same people responsible for funding new hollywoodland films, originality and creativity comes not when your motivations are fear first and profit second.
What most often comes first to someone who is fortunate enough to have all those trees suddenly click to form a forest, is the impulse to go off crusading to free your co-humans from this most cowardly of world orders. Frustration is then encountered as you begin to notice the utterly obvious way in which most people, including yourself, are accustomed to think and act along the rigidly-defined lines as supplied by years of being surrounded by matured media. Indeed, it is this frustration that is meant to divide the people into "sheeple" and a new harvest of "illuminated ones".
Another fallacy that the newly-sighted have to deal with is that of centralised control, and I think that the impulse to free all is partly or completely derived from this line of thinking. You will inevitably observe this riding on the back of the truth movement: "Every bank turned out to be stealing, therefore we should have a centralised institution to monitor them." What the hilarious euro should have already demonstrated is that even a subset of life's problems are far too complex to have a single solution. Already this manner of institution is being attempted to regulate the universally-evil carbon dioxide. They do try so very hard. Never mind that everything these institutions do will happen behind closed doors, and include in its governing body people that no one and nothing except the requirements of capital elected. Never mind that every cent from the trillions of the first global tax will be spent in secret, until leaks open up a scandal of the oldest kind, to be buried behind some celebrity's sudden death.
No. It is no-one's duty to free everyone from themselves. It is my lifelong duty to free myself from my own stupidity. It's not the state's duty, and it is most certainly not that of the new world order. Giving up every ounce of life force to a pyramidal control structure in return for the protection of a police state is an extension of every person's right to make their own choices. Is someone a prisoner while they cannot perceive the bars on their cell and would never think to venture near them?
But let's not consider only the lowest common denominator, the state's staple diet. There are many who will need help, and that just might make the difference between their continued destruction under the current world order and the start of their lives as free human beings. Knowledge, for one thing, is something that can be shared without being diminished. In fact, it only improves with the assistance of another mind.
Still, many people will die here whose most admirable achievement will have been to paw at their tablets after gratification like some cosmically disappointing hamster seeking its next food pellet. There will be a reality show where someone comes to tie the shoes of those too voluminous or mentally deficient to do it themselves. The choice of this destiny is every person's right.
Here then is a useful word for everyone who insists on a police state to protect their infantile features:
Hau is a word used in southern Africa, and it can be translated to mean "I don't know". Most of the time "how this happened/works" can be suffixed. It is notable in that it often represents the the final step in the most ambitious attempt the user will make in understanding a problem. I suspect it will become much more widely useful than it is even now. Examples:
In order for a building to collapse into its own footprint at free-fall speed, all its load-bearing supports need to be severed at close to the exact same moment. How could this happen due to fire?
If all liquidity is introduced into the system as a loan from a bank, having interest, which means the amount that needs to be repaid is more than what was created, how could you expect anything other than infinite debt or collapse?
Having accepted that they are not capable of producing even possible hypotheses to relatively simple questions, even if their thought pattens are ruler-straight (like this dipshit), people are then free to proceed in giving all of their labour and love to the first charlatan or shill that are capable of speaking the loudest and producing the most shiny false dichotomies and straw man arguments. They have my blessing to continue in banging their heads against trees, trying to jetpack away from within what is actually a dense forest. In a moment of weakness during frustration I may still mark them with the name of sheeple. But that's not because their life is worth less than mine, only because it's apparently worth more to me than it is to them.
There will always be those that would challenge you for being different, because we are shifting. If we weren't moving (physically, mentally, spiritually...) we would not be alive. Life fractally affects diversification to ensure continuation and invention, which also means at least some number would always be moving in opposite directions. We seem to be shifting pretty fast now, which returns even more friction than the usual bounce of things.
We shouldn't let stand what we feel is wrong, but we have in our clearly incomplete process of collectively maturing, been stuck with the idea of trying to prevent anything bad from ever happening again. That is where you start to get all these non-functioning pyramidal control structures, that have turned bloated with corruption, as they have centralised and accumulated the unwanted type of creatures that are attracted to power because they feel they cannot attain anything honestly. In a seemingly desperate but failing attempt to stay relevant in an increasingly informed world, what they sell now includes a thousand different causes to get all rah rah about from the comfort of your own home. If women have a problem with the system, blame the men. If you're black, blame the whites, or the illegal immigrants, Chinese or Arabs if you're white. Never the detached top of the pyramid with the eye everyone is afraid to look into, which itself has a request, begging "blame the sheeple". Never yourself for falling for it.
So the vatican wants a global central bank, their unimaginably absurd demand attempting to ride on the back of the Occupy movement. This movement, as far as I can gather, is made up of mostly people in their early twenties, the igniting complaint being that after getting duped into taking college loans, all the prosperity had run out by the time the attempted brainwashing was over. Naturally I'm all for breaking up the big banks and demolishing the incestuous link between government and large corporations, but they are only demanding jobs, in my opinion, because they've never had one.
How it works is that we generally have to spend a third of our lives sleeping, so that time is spoken for. On top of that, we have no real choice but to spend another third or more of our matured lives at jobs, where we earn a fixed amount of money, feverishly working to increase profits we won't see a cent of until inflation starts impacting on our ability to work. That leaves less than a third of all our lives to actually, you know, live. Except, that third comes after the money pyramid worshipping third, so we're all tired as hell, and the last bit is spent mostly resting and "relaxing", so that we can go to sleep and do it all again tomorrow.
That leaves almost no energy for anything that's really important, like thinking about what we're actually doing, and doing anything other than what you get paid to do. So it happened that we left all the control of almost all the most important aspects of our lives up to someone else. Politics and the issuing of currency is boring as hell, we can all agree, but we need to stop denying that it is ruling all our lives and the way we live it. If not our personal lives, that is certainly affected by our communities which still allow all their personal lives to be guided by it.
The real sick part comes in with the fact that we have allowed this crucial lever of control to be taken over by people we do not know. We don't know these people. We know what their PR departments want us to hear, and in some cases, we're allowed to know what their other enemies would like us to hear, but that's it. When it comes down to it, none of us can interact with these so-called leaders in a setting that is not a public relations event.
Future historians will regard this entire little mess we've allowed to happen as a study in mass insanity. We can accomplish nothing more than our animal impulses without community, and leaving some part of your life up to someone else requires trust. Were we are now, we gave away that trust to people we have never interacted with, and so have no real idea whether they are deserving of that trust. Centralised systems of anything do not work, because after it reaches a certain size, it has to arrange itself in a fashion of top-down control. It's just physics that positions of power attract people who cannot attain anything honestly. No community will be free of these people until enough of us figure out that people and communities can interact to achieve a common goal, but that no station of power, control or importance should ever be allowed outside the reach of the axe and the tree stump.
